Customer ReviewsOverall good but could be great (3 stars)
This app does a good job of letting you watch live games (with the caveat that you must have a satellite or cable TV subscription). It also does a good job of letting you pick your brackets. However, the reason I don't rate this app higher is that it could leverage this combination into a much more potent app. This is the only app that lets you watch live games as well as pick your brackets in the same app. Why not integrate the two features
Bring back the ability to pay upfront (3 stars)
First this app was great when anyone could pay a flat fee without a television provider and watch every single game. Now to watch all the games you need a television subscription package that includes all the channels. Therefore if you don't have truTV you are out of luck. You can't watch any of those games. You still get an alert to tune in and watch but get an error screen saying your package does not include truTV.
My issue with
A downgrade from previous years (2 stars)
The cable subscription thing aside, the app works fairly well. My main issue is that this year the video streams are set up in the app in a way that prevents you from seeing other game's scores/times while watching a game. There had always been a part of the video overlay that had current scores, with the ability to tap on one to switch to that game's video. Now, I can't see other game's statuses without backing out of the game I'm watching.
